Activist comes (a little bit) clean

Climate activist Michael Shellenberger makes public announcement that he has been wrong about Global Warming and was too frightened to say so. Let's hope that a great many others follow his lead. He makes a long and detailed confession of a type that is rarely seen. Now he needs to put right as much as possible of the harm that he has done - and it sounds as if he intends to do just that.

He now says: "Wood fuel is far worse for people and wildlife than fossil fuels."

Shellenberger joins a big swing towards support for nuclear energy: from a mindset that has grown accustomed to looking at one Big Idea (i.e. 'climate change'), it looks now to another.


In our opinion, nuclear energy needs to be complemented by the rehabilitation of coal as a source of energy and the understanding that carbon dioxide is good for the planet and not bad. Reduction in waste and modest life-styles, passive heating/cooling with clever engineering and design are what we at Beauty and the Beastly Truth support.


Shellenberger's public confession is well-timed to publicise his new book "Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All" (published 23 July 2020).
